HYUNDAI-HUANGHAI

Hyundai Motor Co. will show its new SUV (sport utility vehicle), which is higher than its New Santa Fe, according to Hyundai China and Beijing Hyundai Co., Ltd., its joint venture with Beijing Automotive Industry Corp. It kind of looks like a mix of Kia Sorento and new Santa Fe (But what is Huanghai ??? A new joint-venture ?)

It is another illegal Chinese replica. Huanghai used to build Santa Fe under a license, then decided to build its own replica version after the license was terminated. Hyundai's sueing in court.

hmmm...

Can you give me the name of the Hyundai person or the department, or the article in which is stated that Hyundai will go to court (or is it your big thumb as always?)
I don't think they would sue the chinese company. Even QQ and A6 case was failed coz the way chinese court works. Although this car has a exact same face as the new santa fe, it's still not identical like QQ an A6.

I'm wonder why the chinese goverment let this happen even now. Especially, when some of chinese leading car manufactures are trying so hard to export a car to oversea. I don't think it'll do any good to their reputation at oversea.

This is a pic linked from the JAC company website


http://www.jac.com.cn/back/upfile/pro/20062201110440.jpg

From the fact that JAC makes Hyundai badged vehicles, I guess it should be a lisenced manufacturer of this model. So far as I know, JAC has a joint venture with Hyundai making small and medium size buses under both JAC and HYUNDAI brands. So there should be a certain cooperative relation between the two.

Official website of JAC Bus Co. where we could see both JAC and HYUNDAI logos on the first page.
